And Saturday night was another case in point.
Defender Lucas Digne's own goal deep into stoppage time completed a superb comeback after Everton had led 2-1 going into the last 10 minutes of the match.
But the Clarets were just as guilty at the other end.
Lampard may find it impossible to put him back on the bench now.
GK Kepa Arrizabalaga, 6 - Produced a good save to stop Erik Pieters' deflected shot at the midway point in the first half, but helpless to prevent Jay Rodriguez's screamer from distance or Dwight McNeil's deflected effort shortly after.
He smashed over a more hard chance on his left foot, after a lovely pick out from McNeil, but Pulisic wasn't as profligate at the other end.
Pulisic is now Chelsea's second-leading goal creator, with three goals and five assists, trailing only Tammy Abraham's nine goals and two assists. That's right, a header against Burnley.
"The way he used the ball to cut Burnley to shreds was cruel at times".

Tesla said it expected to deliver between 360,000 and 400,000 vehicles this year , representing 45-65 per cent growth. Efficiencies included reductions in manufacturing and material costs and continued improvements in vehicle quality.
Sterling's role in City's second goal was more controversial.
It's getting the balance right, which Sean Dyche has usually achieved more often than not. It is this side of their game where perception may not have quite caught up with reality.
Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers believes there is better still to come from his side after they equalled the biggest margin of victory in the Premier League era.
Chelsea then doubled their lead right on half time, after Ashley Barnes missed a real chance to draw Burnley level, with Pulisic again firing in a deflected effort after Tarkowski gave the ball away in a risky position.
Both sides attacked with intent in the opening stages, but it was Chelsea who struck first.
The Blues have been one of the most entertaining teams in the early part of the season and are now finding some solidity at the back too. Meanwhile, the central defensive partnership of Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori looks a very promising one indeed.
The winger was fantastic at Turf Moor, with his first two goals coming following runs from the halfway line - and his third a header.
Let's enjoy him while we can. "I had a few starts earlier in the season and then I fell out a bit and tried to get any minutes that I could and make an impact".
The way he took his goal against Chelsea - the audacity, technique and sheer force with which he beat a top goalkeeper - could only be admired. As I get older I want to improve every day and being here and training and working with these guys every day, playing at the highest level, I've learnt so much already.
